Pablo blends documentary and animation elements to tell the saga of "famous unknown" Pablo Ferro, a man with a personal journey that starts in Havana during the pre-Cuban revolution and spans to today in his current home in the garage behind his son's house. The animation takes us through the dreamscape of Pablo's memories, while the documentary footage chronicles a very eccentric lifestyle of a 72 year old artist, once hailed by Stanley Kubrick as the father of the 60's look and the MTV aesthetics.

This documentary is an imaginatively told tribute and story of the respected film title designer, Pablo Ferro, who was this year's recipient of the Gabi Lifetime Achievement Award at the 16th Los Angeles Latino International Film Festival. 

Pablo blends documentary and animation elements to tell the saga of "famous unknown" Pablo Ferro, a man with a personal journey that starts in Havana during the pre-Cuban revolution and spans to today in his current home, in the garage behind his son's house. The animation part of the film takes us through the dream-scape of Pablo's memories, while the documentary footage chronicles a very eccentric lifestyle of a 72 year old artist, once hailed by Stanley Kubrick as the father of the 60's look and the MTV aesthetics. Narrated by Oscar-winner Jeff Bridges.

When he lived in New York's infamous alphabet city in the '60s he hosted tout New York, from Andy Warhol to Jack Kerouac at his raucous parties.  In spite of troubles in love, lots of drugs and his crazy life, his talent made him sought after as a precious talent. Today he can recall those wonderful days and show his talent in its many, many forms, enriching all listeners with his great story telling talents. Check out the DVD.  Shoreline handles international rights to this fascinating documentary for those international distributors who like documentaries about art, movies, Latinos, Cubans or crazy menschen. 

During his extensive career, over four decades, Mr. Ferro has worked on the title designs of over 80 films and television shows. Some his more notable works include classics like Dr. Strangelove and Thomas Crowne Affair, and more recent titles like Beetlejuice, Men in Black and Good Will Hunting.

“His immense contributions to the entertainment industry are a point of pride for the Hispanic filmmaking community,” said Marlene Dermer, Co-founder and Executive Director/Programmer of LALIFF.

The prestigious GABI Lifetime Achievement Award is named after legendary Mexican cinematographer Gabriel Figueroa, who is best known for his work on the films Macario, Pedro Paramo and Luis Buñuel’s Simon Del Desierto. Pablo Ferro joined the ranks of other past recipients that represent the highest degree of talent in the Latino film industry, among them the celebrated Spanish director Pedro Almodovar, and cinematographer Guillermo Navarro.
